Keep the changes coming at MIL
Well, I thought I’d been snowed on in the middle of a warm sunny day.
Fancy seeing Murray Irrigation talk about advocacy.
And what a coincidence — it comes just after two candidates for the upcoming MIL election have been telling us what we already know: That MIL has been weak in the advocacy space and needs to do much more.
Seems someone listened.
Just before you could say ‘where’s my water?’, we hear the MIL chairman on the radio and then he features in an MILprepared media release, telling us all about its advocacy efforts.
I’d like to ask: Where have those efforts been in recent years?
And: Did it take two candidates forming a joint ticket calling for more advocacy for someone to listen?
I suspect unless we get change at MIL, after the election it will be back to what we have become used to and we’ll get more of the same advocacy failure that we have accepted as being the norm.
Please, shareholders, do not let this happen.
Vote for Lachlan Marshall and Waander Van Beek so we at least have a chance to bring about change.
Yours etc. Andrew Hateley
